  5. Next iPhone to be HD enabled? | The Portable Gamer

    […] Phonenews has some rather tasty information on Apple’s instructions to their Authorized Resellers regarding placing both the Composite and Component AV cable on clearance ahead of a probable iPhone/iPod Touch HD launch. Both current cables were not well received by the public. The cables first added encryption chips, which (upon the release of iPhone OS 2.0) made it impossible to use other, cheaper AV cables with Apple’s most advanced mobile devices. […]

    I love my Apple TV. I think that the reason its sales are luke-warm is that they never advertised it, at least to my knowledge. I’ve seen many ads for all of Apple’s other products, but not Apple TV. I have wondered why since it is a good product and it would seem that they would want to sell as many films and rentals as they can.

    If iPhone doubles as a portable Apple TV, it would be a great compliment to my Apple TV at home. I would also have a portable one to use on the road. Brilliant!

    Dumb question…would you be able to capture HD video too, do you think? As per Samsung Omnia (i8910) HD mobile that’s just been released?

    Since they are “probably” using HD screens on the new iphone shouldn’t they take a step forward and use the new OLED technology to make a better, lighter and thinner screen for the new iphone. Also I’ve heard about a 3.2 mp camera but no one has ever mentioned if it will include flash (light) for the new camera?

  15. Upcoming iPhone to Support HD Video? « Free the TV

    […] PhoneNews is reporting that Apple is moving away from the Apple Composite AV Cable and Apple Component AV Cable. The speculation is that a new single cable could preclude HD Video output from the next generation iPhone. Multiple options will be given to users to get HD video onto their TV, via iPhone and iPod. First, consumers will be able to store HD shows on their devices directly. However, considering the limits of flash storage, this is a time consuming process. Enter Bonjour. Apple will also provide the ability for users to plug their iPhone into their HDTV, and gateway onto a user’s Wi-Fi network, and access their entire iTunes library on their HDTV. […]
